Christianity Explored

// March 22nd, 2014 // Comments Off // General

We’ll be starting a new Christianity Explored course after our current Sunday series on evangelism. CE is a great way to introduce yourself or others to what it means to be part of church and is spread over 10 weeks. We will be holding the series on a Monday evening and we expect to start on 12th May. If you’d like to come along please contact the church for more details, or keep an eye on the website for more details.

Christmas Services

Christmas starts with ChristChristmas starts with Christ. An obvious point for a church to make, perhaps but apparently one that needs making these day.

Our Christmas series will be answering some essential questions about Jesus and Christmas. Join us, and see why Christmas really does start with Christ.

As we work through the month, you’ll be able to click on the titles to listen to the recordings of our messages.

8th 10:30am Why Jesus came as he did
15th 10:30am Why Jesus came as a Baby (Family service)
22nd 10:30am Why Jesus came to the people He did
22nd 5pm Christmas Special: Carols & Hog Roast.
24th 11:30pm (‘Midnight’ service) Why Jesus’ coming is still Good News!

We’re delighted to be hosting a South West Elim Sound Worship event on Saturday 19th October.

The day will consist of two main elements:

• Members of the Elim Sound core team will be providing worship teaching seminars based on the Elim School of Worship modular weekend courses (Our worship leader had the privilege of attending the ‘Creative Leadership’ course last year which he say he found “extremely helpful, useful and encouraging”).

• The Elim Sound worship team will then lead us in worship in the evening – A time for us to worship God and spend time with him. Please invite your church to come and worship with us in the evening.

Schedule for the day:

10:30 – 11:00 – Registration (tea and coffee)
11:00 – 12:30 – Seminar One – (‘Song Writing’)
12:30 – 13:30 – Lunch (light sandwich buffet provided)
13:30 – 15:00 – Seminar Two – (‘Band Dynamics’)
15:00 – 16:00 – Tea and Coffee
16:00 – 18:00 – Church auditorium closed for band sound check and rehearsal
18:00 – 19:30 – Worship Concert

This is a great opportunity and I would encourage you to pass this on to your worship teams.

This is a free event (there will be an offering after the concert), but we need to know numbers, so please contact us if you are planning to come to the seminars or the concert.

If you’re not sure where to find us, see this page.

New I AM series starts 13th Oct

// October 3rd, 2013 // Comments Off // General, News, Preaching

Our new Sunday morning series starts on the 13th Oct, entitled ‘I am’, it looks at some of the claims Jesus made about Himself. Taken from 7 key passages in John’s gospel it should be an enlightening and interesting series.

I am

New (School) year

// September 6th, 2013 // Comments Off // Events, General, Sermons

New term, everything starting up again at school, work and probably numerous other places as well. We’re not exempt, so here’s the latestupdate for us:

Sunday mornings will be back to normal (or as normal as we ever get) this week. We’ll be rounding off the armour of God series with a message on the subsequent point – pray at all times. Our kids will be back in their age groups this week too (so I’m back to work!)

We’ve got our Harvest service coming up, plus Debbie Howard coming to talk about her missionary work on the 28th at the Aspire women’s morning, and speaking at our regular service on the 29th.

We’ve not given up on our scheduled sunday morning series either – a new set entitled “I Am” will be starting in October to lead us up to the Christmas period. More details on that will follow in the next few weeks.
